Praised by The New York Times as "an indispensable guide for the homeowner and the professional," Tree Maintenance has been the definitive source on maintenance of North American landscape trees for over forty years, an essential reference not only for arborists, nurserymen, and landscapearchitects, but for all homeowners who want to keep their trees healthy and pest-free. The Sixth Edition has been completely revised and reorganized to reflect the enormous amount of new information available since the last edition, including the latest techniques in selecting, planting, andprotecting trees. The authors explain how to evaluate the site (the soil, drainage, and exposure), how to select the right tree for that location, and how to prune, fertilize, and spray for pests. There is an extensive section on the diagnosis and control of tree pests and diseases, and on problems such asconstruction damage, gas injury, sunscald, leaf scorch, and air pollution. The second half of the book comprises a systematic listing of the major landscape trees found in North America, describing the specific pests and diseases that attack each species. Well organized, clearly written, and beautifully illustrated with many new photographs, the Sixth Edition of Tree Maintenance is an encyclopedic resource, the first place to turn for information on dogwoods and elms, magnolias and redwoods, or any other tree growing in North America. Anyoneserious about gardening will want this book on their shelf.
